In preparation of this Report is have tried my best to provide all Possible information about the operation, function and tasks of MEPCO in brief and comprehensive form. It also includes a brief department worked during internship. I have also tried my best to use simple and easy words and language. This report is an anthology of my views pertaining to MEPCO operations & practices. In my view it is a credible and comprehensive compilation of facts. In this report I wrote principally on the issues pertaining to job duties & responsibilities, operations & practices and its future prospects with some recommendations. When the time came to give this information a convenient shape I was confronted with a dilemma of what to put in. One leeway was to include all details with explanation & second preference was to point out some worthy issues with some details. Last solution looked more practicable to me therefore I opt for second solution i.e. to present some relevant feasible details. These details entail information about management philosophy, practices, and functions, strong and weak areas of MEPCO . I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all who helped me in the preparation of this valuable report.

In first five years of its operations by 1958-1963, the electricity capability went up to 636 MW from 119 in 1959, and power generation to about 2500 MKWH from 781. Density of consumption system rose from 278 thousand customers in 1959 to 688 thousand in 1965.
